Monday morning is set to start a bit on the slippery side thanks to a cold front pushing some showers and possible isolated storms through Tampa Bay, according to the National Weather Service.

Though the good news comes twofold. The morning weather won't be nearly as bad as Sunday's brief, but powerful storms that caused wind damage and power outages through the region, and it should clear by the early afternoon for a warm and sunny second half of the day.

Once skies clear and the sun comes out, temperatures should warm to 86, just a bit on the high side of normal. The sun sets Monday at 8:07 p.m., when temps should drop to around 82, before reaching 70 in the overnight with some fog developing.

Once that cold front quickly pushes through the area Monday morning, high pressure and drier air will take control for the next few days. Tuesday and Wednesday should be warmer, near 90 degrees, with rain chances low. Conditions could become favorable for showers and storms heading to the end of the week and into the weekend, but there will still be plenty of sun and warmth through the week with highs staying near 90.
